myVillage at Serangoon Garden

Stepping into a landscape courtyard

myVillage is a two-storey mall with a roof garden located at the heart of Serangoon Garden, in a site of low-rise private residences and shophouses.

The mall was conceptualised as a welcoming garden courtyard that the neighbouring residents could ‘come home’ to.

The main architectural strategy is to blend nature with architecture to create spaces that capture the relaxed, village vibe of Serangoon Garden; in the form of verandahs, sunken porches, back-lane courtyards, sky terraces and roof garden.

The harmony between myVillage and its context is crucial. The design is all about creating an experience of coming home and entering your landscaped courtyard.

Walking under the pattern canopy inspired by the adjacent Angsana trees evokes a walk under a row of trees.
The Gabion Tree boxes on the second storey bring the green closer to the doorstep.

Avenues for outdoor green spaces occur on each level: from the basement sunken courtyard, the first-storey open backyard, the second-storey sky terrace to the expansive roof garden. Landscape was intentionally integrated within the mall.

The elevated Gabion Tree Boxes on the second-storey sky terrace is designed to bring the green closer to one’s doorstep and to set the foreground to myVillage’s glazed outlook. As an outreach gesture, an open sky terrace fronts over half the mall’s perimeter on the second storey. Here, friends and families can chill out or take in the sights on the spacious roof garden on the third storey.
